The trip to the rainy was a very quick one. There was four of us in the boat and did real well so we had to come home early. grin.gifcool.gif The river is still flowing fast but we were able to use a 1/2 oz jig in certain areas. Most of the time you will have to use a 3/4 oz.. Gold, white glow, red glow seem to be great colors once again. If your venturing out i would recomend bringing two anchors. The biggest fish we caught was only 21 inches but there were tons of 17-19 inchers. Good luck fishing.

We were just a little east of the access. Middle of the river in about 10ft of water. We did the best from about 2:30 till dark. We found a spot where we were able to down size our jigs just a bit and that seemed to be the key. Also it seemed frozen shinners seemed to get more bites, but live was also working. There ray1 now thats a fishing report! grin.gif

      If a stream is non-navigable but has been meandered, the shoreland owners own to the thread (centerline) of the stream. If a lake or stream is non-navigable and not meandered, ownership of the bed is as indicated on individual property deeds    its sad that just a few bad apples can ruin it for the rest of us,

      That would be unfortunate if it was shut down. But I wouldn't blame the property owners if they did, as I wouldn't like my property getting trashed either. My oldest daughter, and son, both caught their first rainbow trout out of there 2 years ago, and it's always a must stop on our way to Grand Marais. How is it possible that the river itself is private property?

      For anyone that's interested, the docks were not in on the east side of Island as of Saturday. It was nice to see the lake a little higher than it normally is this time of year but the water was still way too cold for much crappie action - at least where I was fishing. Lots of logs and debris floating around in the middle of the lake so pay attention out there!

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!
